Burma (Christian Aid Mission) — In spite of steep mountains, opposition, and a new law stipulating that the government must approve all religious conversions, an indigenous ministry leader in Burma (Myanmar) said the Holy Spirit has not slowed down.
“God is moving fast in our country, more than ever before, to the few elect among the Burmese and the Karen animists,” said the leader, whose name is withheld for security reasons.
“Our workers are giving training to the new Christians on how to share the Gospel among their own people and about how very near is His return.”
The government gives special status to Buddhism, widely practiced among the Burmese majority, and the ministry leader said he was amazed at the gospel inroads to the Burmese in the past two years. Minority groups such as the Karen also are increasingly embracing Christ, and the ministry has seen pockets of success in reaching the Kayan, especially the Padaung sub-set, and other tribal groups.
